Van Riemsdyk and the Maple Leafs will not play Wednesday after their scheduled game against the Senators was postponed in light of the ongoing crisis in Ottawa, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

Multiple gunmen reportedly fired shots Wednesday morning in the downtown area of the Canadian capital, with one shooter dead and possibly one or more still at large. With several government buildings on lockdown, safety will understandably take greater precedence than proceeding with the game as scheduled. The NHL has yet to announce a make-up date for the postponed contest.

Van Riemsdyk scored a goal and added an assist in Tuesday's win over the Islanders. He also picked up a minor penalty, finished at plus-2 and laid two hits.

Nice line for JVR, but his season has gotten off to a bit of sluggish start. He has five points, including three goals, in seven games, but those points have been bunched into three games. He and Phil Kessel are (so far) engaged in a bit of an all-or-nothing approach and that makes him a sketchy start in daily play.

JVR has two helpers in his past two games, but he hasn't scored a goal in his last five outings.
